Tricky problem. The best cure is to turn the radio off and surf the web to
find Internet Radio stations, but that's only practical if you have
broadband and/or the stations you want are available.

The following might work but I don't hold out much hope...

Moving the radio further away from the PC.
Investing in a fancy case for your PC (eg one with better shielding)
Changing PC screen resolution.
Rotating the radio
Put radio in another room and use cordless headphones.
Operate the radio from batteries if currently on mains.

Move the radio away from the computer. Tune into an FM station. Move the
computer to a different area. Wrap aluminum foil around the radio.

The problem is stray "radio signals" being emitted either from the computer
or the monitor. If you have a FCC Type B certified computer/monitor
combination in the house this is OK. If the computer or monitor is a FCC
type A certified device you are technically in violation of the FCC
regulations as Type A devices should only be used in an office environment
not a home office. If you read the regulations you will find that you are
responsible for any stray signals your device emits if it affects others
reception and you have to accept any stray signals that a your device emits.

Relocation is normally the only way to remove the problems associated with
these stray signals.

I think the poster is in GB, where FCC rules and regulations, I think do not
apply. Ferrite Chokes on the monitor may help, and as another posted advised
u may also try the sreen resolution thing.

Yep, shows UK. Didn't look at the properties of the original post too well
did I! I believe that they do have their own regulations similar to US
however.

I have found relocation is still the best way to solve the problem. I have
a scanner that has the same problem in VHF range when my monitor shows
certain brightness levels (normally almost all white). Moved the scanner
about 4 feet and haven't had the problem since.

They do but I suspect compliance with UK/USA standards isn't enough to
prevent this sort of problem. I've seen a case of a compliant monitor effect
a pacemaker.
